Larry David of Curb Your Enthusiasm brought the enthusiasm when he was disinvited to former President Barack Obama’s 60th birthday bash at Martha’s Vineyard.

Obama’s party, which was apparently held mostly outside and required all guests to present negative Covid-19 results, was first estimated to have 475 attendees.

However, the Obamas, who were chastised for holding such a huge celebration during the pandemic, were forced to reduce the guest list due to the delta variant of the virus.

David was one of the original guests whose invitation was put on ice—and he was super happy about it.

Speaking to reporter Maureen Dowd of The New York Times, David believed he would be asked to do a performance of sorts and was trying his best to come up with a routine to perform in less than a week. He was “relieved” when he got the disinvite.

“I was pretty glum when I finally called back his assistant,” David wrote to Dowd in an email. “When he told me I was eighty-sixed from the party, I was so relieved, I screamed, ‘Thank you! Thank you!’ He must have thought I was insane.”

David then said he hung up the phone, grabbed a drink, and finished his “crossword puzzle.”

Among the disinvited, Late Show host Stephen Colbert claimed to have his invitation to the festivities revoked, joking that the former president “was forced to limit the invites to only his closest Beyoncés.”

Well, it’s safe to say that people who didn’t get the opportunity to boogie down at the party are handling the situation with comedic prowess.
